Conferences or codecamps? Is it binary?

The average face value of a pass for a conference such a Microsoft TechEd runs into the thousands of dollars. Compare that to the low cost or even completely free entry to a community-driven conference or a regional code camp.

How do you determine the value of your attendance at Microsoft PDC versus something like DEVLINK or your local code camp event?

Does it always have to be either or?

DevExpress News Headlines

New ASP.NET MVC Reporting Extensions

With the release of DXperience v2011 vol 1, ASP.NET MVC developers and those exploring this field will have access to new native reporting extensions.

The team have created both a report viewer and a report toolbar extension, and we’re very keen to hear your feedback. Are you working with ASP.NET MVC? Could these extensions help you in applications that you’re currently working on?

Leave your thoughts and feedback in the comments for Seth and the reporting team. We look forward to hearing what you think!

Introducing ASP.NET Docking Controls to DXperience v2011 vol 1

ASPxDocking, an independent trio of brand new docking controls, will be released with the ASP.NET suite of controls in DXperience v2011 vol 1.

These controls will provide you with the mechanics to offer flexible layout customization and the ability to create a “widget” style appearance via drag-and-drop functionality. Not only that, these standalone controls mean that the DevExpress docking solution allows you to place standalone panels, zones and manager docking controls on different web pages.

Can you see potential for these controls in your application? Tell us how you might use this approach in the comments.

The duo will take on a weekly webinar schedule that hands over control of the content to you. Yes, you will get to request which feature should be built from scratch and completed during the 60 minute session. Mark and Rory will both build it and publish it to the community for everyone to enjoy.

This isn’t just express development. This is your express development.

Deploying XAF to The Cloud

Both of the DevExpress frameworks are capable of running on Azure, but it is difficult to show how to do this without a real-world application running on the cloud.

Our frameworks evangelist, Tolis Bekiaris, invited Windows Azure Microsoft MVP Panagiotis Kefalidis to discuss his commercial XAF solution that is currently deployed as a cloud application.

This recording is taken from a recent webinar in the DevExpress Webinar Series. Let us know if there are other XAF topics that you’d like to see covered.

Welcoming New Additions to the DevExpress Charting Suites

Take a look at these short video introductions on the DevExpress Channel to see the chart types and explore potential uses for each.
